WMS-service from USGS returning NAIP Orthophotos
From WindPRO 2.9 it is now possible to add map-services from a WMS-server (Web Map Server).

A Web Map Service (WMS) is a standard protocol for serving georeferenced map images over the Internet. The maps are generated by a map server using data from a GIS database.

WMS Data Sources

You may add your own WMS servers in addition to the list provided by the EMD-server.

Currently (2013) WindPRO contains links to the following WMS services: Note, that WindPRO will - by default - only show the datasets where data are available considering the location of your project.
